Sierra Madre Thornscrub Tortoise

Gopherus evgoodei
EDWARDS, KARL, VAUGHN, ROSEN, MELÉNDEZ-TORRES & MURPHY, 2016
Sonora, Mexico. August 23, 2011.

When we went on our hot, sweaty hike up into tropical deciduous forest to find these tortoises, we knew that someone would eventually describe them as a new species.  The whole adventure is outlined in my blog post ‘A New Old Tortoise‘ over at Notes From The Field 

My Flickr album for this species is here.
